For many a Ghanaian, a meal without meat is not worth eating. In fact for some, when they eat meatless food, they say they have gone hungry. Meat is one of the most consumed products in Kasoa, a fast growing township in the central region where lots of cattle and other animal rearers reside.
Residents living in and around the town troop there to purchase all kinds of animals especially during festive seasons. They then employ the services of the only abattoir (for now) in the town to slaughter and process the meat for consumption.Photos by David Andoh.

Thank you very much Joy fm for carrying out this work, God richly bless you and keep on doing the good work you are doing for the people of mother Ghana. I personally was having a problem with the operations there most especially the car tyre the use in smoking the meat. Am current having a video of the place on my ipad which I wanted to send to joy fm but time wasen't at my side to do that and I left for school in Tamale when I heard you've carry out a nes piece on it. Thank you.

the MCE Dr Nuhu Adams is not tellig us the truth there is no new abbatoir coming up, he said the same thing about an interchange at Kasoa main traffic when NDC took over power 5years ago where is it? lies and propaganda experts
I think ghanaians must just listen to simple advice that too much meat can be dangerous to health.our butchers should also know that they are serving humans and therefore need to be a little bit hygienical. Nyagorme redeemer my name.
